  1. Make the sequence number of a message in a communication diagram an editable property

    I don't care if you only allow simple integers for sequence numbers, I just need to be able to reorder those numbers after I've inserted new messages or removed old ones.

    • Make property element references navigable from the inspector

      As an example, it would be useful to be able to navigate by click or double click on the element referenced as the value of source or target within a use case. This should apply, overall, to all properties that reference other elements.

        • Support UI/UX Prototyping

          I know the main concept of this great tool is support UML for engineer work (mostly in the backend). But, have you ever think in give also a little bit of support for UI/UX prototyping? It don't need to have a complete palete of component, but just the basics. Freelance coder sometimes have to model this for their clients, and having the chance for doing this from the same tool they use for another models, would be great.

          • Add a Progress Dialog to the list of native dialog types

            I am working on an extension that has some potentially long-running tasks, and would like to be able to display a progress bar to the user while the tasks are running. Ideally, the progress dialog would support the following features:
            (1) ability to update percent complete (if not provided, ability to control and update messaging should suffice)
            (2) ability to set whether or not the user can continue interacting with StarUML while the dialog is open
            (3) ability to control messaging on progress dialog
            (4) ability to update messaging (i.e. current part of task being executed, similar to installation progress) …

            • Support for simple markdown documents

              I'd like to create simple markdown documents in the project in order to describe how the application works or how consistance issues are solved.

              Documents should be exported as pages in html docs.

                • provide a way to do a visual diff between two files

                  Given the current staruml file and another, show what is different in the current vs the other file. The idea is for developers to know what changed in the design when an edit is uploaded. We could use the older version from our repository to do the diff. Alternatively, staruml could make a local history store or integrate with version control to provide that diff.

                    User would like to have the ability to add a generic type (example: LinkedList<String>) as return values from methods in classes in Class Diagrams. Currently, only primitive and class types are allowed.

                    • Stop remapping common textfield shortcuts

                      The use of CTRL+DEL or CTRL+Cursor keys is implemented in almost any Software for navigating and altering textfields more efficient. Using CTRL+DEL in a textfield should, in my opinion, delete the next word and NOT the element from the model, especially if CTRL+Z doesn't recover all the data afterwards.
                      If I'm not working in a texfield I like the feature of deleting the element, but when I'm writing documentation it should do as expected.

                      • support of Cross functional flowcharts

                        Flowchart is a basic connectors for representing the call flow. However i see the existing flowchart template is missing the concept of swim lanes.

                        Cross functional flowcharts use swim lanes to provide an extra dimension by assigning each process step to a category. Most often the category is a stakeholder (person, role, or department).

                          • provide the ability to disable validation

                            From time to time it is helpful to be not so strict in modeling first ideas. Therefore it would be very helpful, if the user has the ability to turn of UML validation. For example, it would be nice to have the option to scratch a first idea with just rectangles and arrows. Currently this is not possible. I cannot create two rectangles and have a directed link between those two but rather get an error "Invalid Connection (UMLLink)". Thx, /nm

                                  • Document Meta-Data Box on PDF Prints

                                    In traditional engineering fields diagrams often have a box in the bottom right/left hand corner that indicates the date of the most recent revision, the author, diagram title, etc.

                                    When printing to PDF it would be nice if a similar feature existed with the information for the meta data being pulled from various sources:

                                    - Document Name: <MODEL> - <DIAGRAM>
                                    - Created Date : <CREATED_DATE_ON_FILE>
                                    - Date Modified : <LAST_MODIFIED_DATE>
                                    - Version Number : <optional version number>
                                    - Author : <from preferences or some other dialog>

                                      The direction of the head of arrows is not aligned to the arrowline but to the node points for the line generation. So when the line has suden curve, the arrowhead is seem to be aparted from the arrowline.

                                      • Security / access to diagrams

                                        Hi, I was wondering if there's a way to make a diagram confidential within draw.io? Currently, anyone who would know the diagram's name would be able to access it by creating a copy of that diagram. This might be problematic if we want to map sensitive business processes.

                                        Even if we secure Confluence's page where the diagram is saved, it is still possible to access the diagram when we add a new draw.io macro on another confluence page and make a search by name when selecting which diagram we'd like to use as a template.

                                        Thank you.

                                          In Model Explorer, after removing an item by pressing ctrl+del, focus is missing. I'd like to move the focus using arrow keys for removing another items too.
